Mr. Alcorn passed away Sunday, January 18, 2015 at a Talihina Veterans Center after battling a long surge of pneumonia. He has fought Alzheimer’s disease for approximately eight years. He was born May 1, 1942 in Stonewall to Arthur and Mary Elizabeth Smith Alcorn. He attended Ada schools.
He married Donna Kay Smith on November 22, 1966 in Denison, TX. Mr. Alcorn was a delivery man for Frito Lay and he had served in the U. S. Army. We want everyone to remember him as we do “The smiling, friendly Frito-Lay man”. He spent his life working very diligently and working was 110%. He retired from Frito-Lay after 28 years of service. He then spent his time rocking and playing with grandchildren and as many foster children as he could hold in his lap. He loved the outdoors and fishing, but mostly talking and smiling to everyone he met.
